Reagan's greatest regret?
Per former Chief of Staff Baker, the 1986 amnesty became Reagan's deepest regret.
Reagan had been told to expect (conned into fathoming) a "one-time amnesty" total of 1.1 million-- that PROVED to be 3 million!
But the promised enforcement was NEVER FUNDED; Teddy the drunken driver killer scotched that. Teddy is no doubt chuckling in hell that he changed America to assure the Left's control by increasing the population of (mostly poor, undereducated) Hispanics from 2% in 1980 to 16% today. We have been morphed into the Third World's welfare department!
We got a TIDAL WAVE of ILLEGAL aliens thereafter because of NO REAL enforcement after the 1986 amnesty.
And Heritage calculates that amnesty for 11-12 million now WOULD mean 100 million net new poor and often ignorant with 20 years...and America would be LOST FOREVER!
